Title: Why am I getting a message "you are ignoring this user"
Post by: lil chris on December 16, 2020, 07:22:05 PM
When I have been on Innovationgames post " Marton Hinmarche" I am getting the message " You are ignoring this user. Show me the post" what is all this about. It has done it on previous posts that I have read days ago ? The show me the post is in light blue, clicking on it reveals the post. Never seen it before, other topics/blogs seem to be ok.


Update: just found somehow I had him has ignore, clicked unignore and all is well. I must have done it possibly when using my I-Pad.

I do this periodically too, easily done!

I deliberately choose people to ignore randomly now and again just to add a bit of danger and excitement to my NGF reading.

Yes, as njee says, it's easily done. I've inadvertently done it a few times.

I've been tempted to do it advertently several times but have resisted so far  :D

Does Bealman ever post on here these days?  He used to be a pretty cool poster.

Iíve often wondered how often itís actually used as a function. Given it doesnít actually block content, which I could vaguely understand, it must make following threads somewhat awkward.

Gahh! I was just getting excited that there was a way to 'not' see the 'groaners' thread and my dreams are dashed on the rocks.

Not really, as you have the choice of ignoring the post or seeing it but still leaving that person 'ignored'.

There are far too many of us to ignore (resistance is futile) :P

I've just unignored you.. I didn't know you were ignored, I just though it was some strange way of attracting attention..

Some members of the forum seem to ignore themselves  :goggleeyes:

Thanks Chris, and a Merry Christmas to you too! :thumbsup: :beers:

Re: the ignore feature: even if I select ĎIgnoreí so that a post text in a thread gets replaced with the stock message, I still get the email in my Inbox (if itís a first posting on the thread since I last viewed it, of course) with all the full text displayed if Iím following a thread. Is there any way to prevent this?

@daffy (https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?action=profile;u=5634) It must be the way you have 'Notifications' set up on your profile, Mike.
Have a look and see if you can make the necessary change.

Post by: njee20 on December 17, 2020, 09:23:01 PM
I wouldn't have thought the forum software was clever enough to do that - you actually want the email content 'censored' when you're ignoring the poster? Turn off notifications may be easier, if a bit blunt force.

Post by: daffy on December 17, 2020, 10:16:21 PM
Thanks Mick, Iíll take a look at my settings tomorrow, but like Nick I donít think the software is that detailed. I wouldnít want to turn off notifications altogether. Iím only ignoring one poster so itís not a big deal.

I received this message once or twice and I've made no changes to settings. There must have been some adjustment to the software that has caused these messages to pop up.

No, itís just easy to accidentally click the ďignoreĒ button when scrolling, particularly on mobile.

Yes, I check the forum on my mobile frequently. I'm typing this on it now, actually!

It is quite easy to accidentally hit the ignore button.

Some posters need ignoring.  :-X

But if you are reading this, I did not mean you.  ;)
